Mid­town’s cul­tured condo-ers

Bayview Post - - Raising Toronto -

The & Ori par­ents: Sher, se­nior Peggy di­rec­tor, Sher, full-time pro­cure­ment par­ent, and for­mer se­cu­rity op­er­a­tions at MedRe­leaf man­ager at Her­mès, Home: Kids: Kai, Condo 12, & at Ami, Eglin­ton four & Av­enue Did you al­ways want to raise your fam­ily in Toronto? Peggy: We lived in Thorn­hill. We moved to Toronto when I was preg­nant with Kai, my first child. I was ex­tremely un­happy be­ing preg­nant and liv­ing up in Thorn­hill. We were al­ways city peo­ple. Do you find liv­ing in a condo is cramped? Right now we’re cur­rently look­ing for a house, and it’s been a chal­lenge be­cause we love this area so much. The kids are shar­ing a bed­room now. My daugh­ter came along when I was 40, so she is shar­ing her bunk bed with her brother. But if I had one child, I prob­a­bly would stay in a condo. Are there many safety con­cerns with the kids be­ing in the city? My son walks to school. He goes to Star­bucks. He does his own thing. Now he’s got a phone. Kids with phones are life chang­ing. When he’s walk­ing, we use an app where we can lit­er­ally see him walk­ing to school, and we know he’s on track. When he’s go­ing to his friend’s house, we know he’s on his way, so it’s good. Does your fam­ily take ad­van­tage of Toronto’s cul­tural of­fer­ings? We just signed up for the In­fin­ity Mir­rors at the AGO. We take ad­van­tage of every event at the ROM or AGO — we have fam­ily mem­ber­ships. We just came back from Ri­p­ley’s Mu­seum too.
